1:17 pm
>> he's right here. >> are we good are we back. >> we're back i know it's boring so i want to talk about something that's not as fun at all an item under corrective action called the directors response on the 30th of december staff received a written request from the sfpd to extend e.r. stunned the 953 to limit the hours under the section 10.60 for issues of public safety there's different ways to suspended permits this is formally for the suspension basically to cover new year's eve and so as per that same section
1:18 pm
and subsection e i'm required to report to the entertainment commission both the recommendation of the sfpd and my reasons for not following that recommendation as i'm going to do it is not that complicated after consideration staff chose choose to issue a suspension under the police code and this decision was made on a number of factors first, the permittee voluntarily surntd his permit and not intending to be on on the first of january so the word would have been no entertainment to suspend in my case it's additionally, there had been again, a request to do use the
1:19 pm
72 hour suspension it's called the office in between the city attorney when it was written called the emergency suspension it was written in and created as a way to provide a short but immediate suspension in cases we were concerned about this rotating tally violence that was not a contemplated basis have to spend suspend with someone with a chronic problem and this has been discussed they have a chronic problem in front and around the night club so for those reasons i choose to issue the 5 day suspension under a different section and they were given 5 days to appeal and that
1:20 pm
appeal would have come to you but as of today around 1 o'clock i had an indication no appeal so he's served that appeal from the 6th of january through the 30th of january i think that that's where i'll leave it i'm sure that dave lieutenant was here and officer ma dills i can't see either of them may want to speak but that's my obligation i'm happy to answer any questions you may have. i'll be happy to answer them. >> any questions? is there a working group then to work on what the issues with club atmosphere and situations like that is there something to going forward or are we up to the point as we are now i'm wondering is there i mean because it's been chronic
1:21 pm
>> it's very chronic and to rise to the occasion of a 15 day suspension it's a probative values venue so there are basically spelled out in the document i'm happy to provide that document it is the violations that we had documented but it wasn't necessarily on calendar together to talk about this specific incidents there was a point up to when he told me he wouldn't be appealing so not wanting to expose you to details to recuse users that was not in the docket it was for me to guaranteed by the code to tell you why i didn't follow the
1:22 pm
recommendation by the police department that's important to know we work together on stuff but times when we disagree i'm populated to tell you why. >> i have a question do you know if they intend to reopen. >> our suspension is their entertainment permit opening and closings we can't tell them what to do pits my understanding we had an understanding from the permittee he has inform technician to reopen i don't know. i won't guess with whether he's on or closed he can't on during the suspension but he can't have entertainment. >> my other question if the police decided to bring charges for a revocation or more severe
1:23 pm
suspension it will come to the commission as a - >> yes. absolutely a receive a thirty day suspension. >> do you know if that may happen. >> i don't know, you ask the policeman there he is standing on the wall. >> i'm hand to over to those guys if you don't agree with the police department when they request this is this immediate to they know it's closed how does that work. >> i mean all of those don't think on circumstances in this case they are aware of everything i was doing because we used every manner of communication that we've got about w when this kind of things that happening yes, their aware and like i said we're trying to effect the same things i hope and i know that the police
1:24 pm
department is taking this particular case very seriously because it is use of resources and their policemen that have been hurt this is a serious problem on broadway i explained my thinking on it. >> one follow-up question with the 15 follow-up suspension would the police want to request longer than with double jeopardy apply. >> i don't know interests an additional suspension request. >> the police has a right to bring an action before the commission before the suspension of revocation based on the criteria that is laid out in 1060 and this commission will hear it as it almost like an
1:25 pm
administrative law body where they put a case which side they maybe witnesses and we'll all as a commission act as the judge am i yes. >> my concern you've made the decision put the punishment in place the 15 day suspension. >> yeah. this is a administrative this is not like a permital so those standards are different. >> is this bans public health and safety. >> at this point we'll hand to the inspections or hear from the police matter it depended on what the commission wants to do. >> why not hear from the police on this matter.
1:26 pm
>> vice chair hide and commissioner dave from the sfpd. >> so let me jump into answering our questions from the police department perspective first and foremost the communication between our staff and us was excellent there are times we have our tactics and our logic we try and the commission has theirs we approached this with a 72 suspension with the simple reason it's a immediate and not appealable just to be accurate with the details before i do let me say in the end we achieved what we wanted but as new years eve that venue was sold-out he toults e told us he was
1:27 pm
proposing because he couldn't have employees not workman's comp insurance and wasn't going to get it bring into contract labor all brand new staff and security with a sell out crowd to say the least that was alarming to the police department and commission so because of all those tactics we are that utilizing the director is correct in the end he choose to close for new years eve that wouldn't have happened if all the vehicles started moving forward i guess just the only thing i wanted to speak to it is something we should all look at in the future protective intent and legislation is two things the spirit of what the section
1:28 pm
was written for i really time to make it clear it's important to the police department we maintain credibility and you'll see my request it never exceeded the law the idea our request wasn't appropriate is up to you to the commission to determine i'm extremely confident it exceeded the standards in 1060 but lined up at the end of the day, we got what person looking for we wanted to protect the public safety on new years eve and moving forward with that i'll stop and if you have questions i'll be happy to take them. >> i don't see any questions. >> just a comment medical cannabis i appreciate the communication with the police department and this staff lined up at the end of the day both
1:29 pm
teams came to fruition so thank you. >> absolutely this was going into the wee hours and a lot of that unfortunately was we gave him ample time to speak to commissioner hyde's point to come to the table self-happen jose linen and i were communicating late into the evening from our homes at least it was mine at this point so the city's commitment was significant both the police departments and the commission so in that regard we appreciate it just to get the one issue out the question was asked the expectation and the plan of police department we don't want to be quiet about it we want to be consistent with our produce our plan to come before you in the future with revocations we're not interested in another
1:30 pm
thirty or 15 day suspension we have documentation we have bent over backward to help to get one thing we see another and latter when officer from his comments with regards to the central station with regards to new years eve he'll touch on the further step and commissioner frost in the back of our book are the police code 1060 if you've got a 20.2 we'll talk to the directors powers and 1050.30 talks about the suspension by the director and 1060.20.4 talks about revocation you can read that to really
